Default mounting partitions in a logical volume used as a physical disk for a virtual machine

If I'm understanding correctly, you have a host LV serving as a full drive

for a guest, and you want to mount the partitions that are stored within

that LV?

You probably want "kpartx", which will build a dm device for each

partition, based on the partition table it finds:

set up the dm slices:

sudo kpartx -a /dev/storagevg/drivelv

ls -l /dev/mapper/loop0p*

and to mount partition 2:

sudo mount /dev/mapper/loop0p2 /mnt/folder .....

after you're done:

sudo kpartx -d /dev/storagevg/drivelv

e.g. I've used this tool when converting KVM images:
